Description

Furnace is an engine-building Eurogame in which players take on the roles of19th-century capitalists building their industrial corporations and aspiring tomake as much money as they can by purchasing companies, extracting resources,and processing them in the best combinations possible.

Each player starts the game with a random start-up card, the resourcesdepicted at the top of that card, and four colored discs valued 1–4.

The game is played over four rounds, and each round consists of two phases:Auction and Production. During the auction, 6–8 company cards are laid outwith their basic sides face up. Players take turns placing one of their discs onone of these cards, but you cannot place a disc on a card if a disc of the samevalue or color is already present. Thus, you'll place discs on four cards.

Once all the discs are placed, the cards are resolved from left to right.Whoever placed the highest-valued disc will claim this card, but first anyonewith a lower-valued disc on this card will gain compensation, either theresources depicted multiplied by the value of their disc or a processing ability(exchange X for Y) up to as many times as the value of their disc.

Once all the cards have been claimed or discarded, players enter theproduction phase, using their cards in the order of their choice. Each companycard has one action — either production or processing — on its basic sideand two actions on its upgraded side. During the production phase, you can useeach of your cards once to gain resources, process those resources into otherresources or money, and upgrade your cards.

At the end of four rounds, whoever has the most money wins.

Furnace also includes capitalist cards that contain unique effects, and ifyou want, you can choose to deal one out to each player at the start of thegame. For an additional challenge, you can require players to create a“production chain”, with each newly acquired company card being placedsomewhere in that chain and locked in position for the remainder ofthe game.
